    OPForum Championship: Underrated Characters!

    FINALLY ANOTHER TOURNAMENT - After you guysvoted, this was the most requested tournament. So here ya go, guys...

    This one's a little different to the last one, since it's going to be a "full" tournament rather than the "mini" tournament I did for the Straw Hats. There'll be 20 characters this time, and it's going to be up to you guys to decide which ones take part!

    "but maruko how we deciding character???"

    By voting, of course! Each user will compile a list of up to ten (10) characters they deem to be "under-rated", in order of preference.

    1. Gatz
    2. Buggy
    3. Zoro
    4. Hody Jones
    5. Condoriano
    6. Ivankov
    7. Aphelandra
    8. Axe Hand Morgan
    9. Woop Slap
    10. Chouchou

    "but meurko why i ned to do in ordr of prenefrence it taek 2 longe!"

    Because characters who place higher on your list will be given a higher score when I'm going through the voting forms, that's why.

    "but merko waht mean higher socore?"

    The character you place first on your list will be given 10 points. Second place will be given 9 points, and so on, until tenth place, who will recieve 1 point.
    Once the voting closes, I'll compile everyone's responses into a big ol' spreadsheet and score them. The characters with the 12 highest scores will be entered automatically into the first round, and the characters who rank 13-20 will be placed in the preliminaries. The final bracket will look a little something like this:

    2018-01-10 (2).png

    If any characters are tied on score, then their seeding will be decided by the number of individual votes they recieve, regardless of preference. If that's tied, then I'll have a playoff round before the tournament starts.

    The rules for the tournament proper will be in a separate thread, which will also be stickied

    I'd also like to extend an invitation to people who want to help out - I'm going to have exams this month and then given how long this is going I'll have other work and stuff to do while this runs, so any help would be much appreciated ^_^

    I'll give one week for people to submit their votes, meaning the deadline for character voting is January 17th, 2018.


    Enjoy the Tournament!

    Now, if the character with more points gets through the tournament leave them as they are, otherwise if the one with less points gets through they need to be from 10 to 1.
    Sorry, that part wasn't very clear

    You don't have to change your vote, I just don't see what Luffy is doing in a contest for underrated characters. Luffy, the character who ranked first in every One Piece popularity poll. To me that seems the opposite of underrated. But eh, it's up to you I guess.

    Dunno how this is even an underrated character contest when characters literally most of the people like and know get voted up... this basically is just a normal character contest

    Suggestion: take out the top 50/25/whatever of the most recent official Character Poll otherwise this contest become pretty damn pointless

    I personally put each character in my top 10 for different reasons. Law, for example, has easily one of the top 3 DFs for me and he could be an even stronger beast than what Oda makes him, I mean he got his ass handed by Doflamingo twice, so I didn't put him in because he's not popular. If the case is just the popularity of characters, I'll immediately change my vote. @Marco Polo

    I mean, it really depends how you define "underrated" - a popular character could be underrated because the reasons they're popular often overshadow what's good about them (Boa is a pretty good example actually - she ranks high in popularity polls because big tiddy when there's a lot more to her than that). I don't want the voting to be "who can find the most obscure character on the One Piece Wiki", I want people's genuine opinions.

    That's what I meant by I don't understand the point system, I remember seeing in the poll that the characters with less votes go through with the tournament..

    The point system is there to stop there being a load of ties between characters who've received the same number of votes. Also, in most cases characters with more votes will go through because they'll get more points

    No sorry, once again i didn't explain myself properly ahah

    say:
    3 people vote for coby
    2 people vote for usopp
    1 people votes for mr 3

    i'd expect mr 3 to go through as he's the one with less points hence most underrated.
    Hopefully this is clearer lol

    Ohhhh, I get you, that kinda makes sense. It's hard to explain but here's how it goes:

    Essentially, the goal of the tournament is to give recognition to characters we all believe to be commonly underrated, so your ranking should be going from the character you believe is the most "most underrated", to the one you believe is the least "most underrated". As paradoxical as it seems, the ones who are getting more votes/points are the ones that we think are the most underrated
